Canadian International Music Competition Strategy
The Foundation is pleased to help facilitate the professional journey of gifted musicians in partnership with the following institutions. Together, we cultivate significant talent for the world stage.
BISQC is well recognized as a leader among international music competitions. It identifies and provides best-in-class career support to the next generation of exceptionally talented chamber musicians. Its laureate roster reads as a “who’s who” of the best early and mid-career string quartets on the global concert circuit.
The triennial Honens International Piano Competition discovers and launches the careers of the world’s most promising new pianists, all who prove themselves to be a “Complete Artist.” Its three-year Artist Development Program includes a personalized package of international debuts recitals, artist residencies, a commercial audio recording, mentorship and representation.
CMIM selects and supports young musical talent the world can offer to pursue an international performing career. CMIM is unique among its Canadian colleagues in that it selects laureates for three different instruments – violin, piano and voice – on a three-year rotation. It is also the only such competition to runs on an annual basis.
